This looped Ultra will begin and end at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park.

This Ultra will be run at a sociable pace to cater to everyone's needs. Expect some hills which will be a great first taste to become accustomed to the trail running Ultra scene. The final part of the run will take you along the Sussex border path, then on to Stanton way where your loop will end.
